Inspired by flash and short stories, this workshop introduces techniques for creating short pieces and arranging them into a longer memoir. We'll look at work by Sandra Cisneros, Sonja Livingston, Nick Flynn, and even a poem by Kevin Young. Writing exercises will prompt you to begin short, compelling pieces that you can later assemble into more complex narrative. If you're just starting out and find a lengthy project intimidating, or looking for new inspiration for your memoir in progress, this session can help you find a way to move forward.  

This class will be hosted using live Zoom meetings! You will be able to participate in class via Zoom videoconference from wherever you’re most comfortable. All you’ll need is a laptop or a phone! About 15 minutes before your class is scheduled to begin, you'll receive an email from your instructor with a link to join the class meeting via Zoom–no need to download anything or sign up for Zoom in advance! If you have questions about remote learning, please feel free to reach out to [email protected] for more information.

For a glimpse at how remote learning works, look no further than the deep Zoom discussion of writing and literature below:
